Little & Large: Mainline Steam DVD
Steam hauled train services were once a common sight on the UK Rail Network. Services were hauled around the UK and operated by the 'Big 4' Operating Companies before nationalisation by British Rail in 1948.
First invented during the 19th Century, the steam train became a useful and important invention for the UK as a wide collection of goods and passengers could now be transported all over the country quickly and efficiently.
Many different steam engines were designed and operated throughout the country. From the small industrial tanks to the prestigious A4 Class renown for holding the World's fastest steam engine title to date, each class of engine had a specific role and could be seen hauling suitable trains around the Country.
Today the UK Rail Network is very different with most services hauled by diesel and electric locomotives. Occasionally steam hauled services can be witnessed travelling on the UK Rail Network around the UK recreating the sights and sounds of the 20th Century.
Our DVD features a whole collection of different steam engines doing exactly what they were designed to do, hauling services around the UK. From the high speed express services hauled by the superb LNER A4 Class storming up the East Coast Mainline at 90mph to the smaller engines climbing the steep banks and curves of the West Highland Extension Railway in Scotland there is something for every Mainline Enthusiast. The DVD features footage from 2009 to 2014 with a collection of steam engines at different locations around the UK. All footage included on the DVD was filmed in High Definition.
